Review - Zambrero

Sydney’s Mexican revolution continues with another fast, fresh anglicised Mexican venue rolling out in Darlinghurst. With their closest competitor only footsteps away, they’ll need to carve out their own niche - my hit prediction is it will be their luscious marinated lamb steak... but I digress.

The space is modern, clean and bright, in the unmissable shade of lime green. It’s roomy and pleasant to dine in; and you should dine-in, this food gets messy. They’re down with modern dietary concerns offering up all fillings in a Bol ($9.90) - think burrito in a bowl, minus the tortilla. I am also pleased to report they only use organically raised “happy chickens”.

Begin by choosing your style – I tried them all (bar the bol) and liked the clever Dos Capas ($4.95) the best. It’s a hard taco (which can be pesky to devour) wrapped in a soft tortilla – crafty!

My Burrito ($9.90) filled with excellent tender hunks of perfectly cooked lamb steak with coriander salsa and white sauce (garlic and herbs) won my vote for best filling – plus it’s less dense than your average burrito, and the Mission tortillas scrub up well.

I also thought the tasty, mild adobo grilled chicken with corn salsa and chipotle sauce suited a Taco ($3.95).

I didn't like it as much as I like Mad Mex.

Did you try the lamb?

no, the idea of lamb mex was odd.
I tried the beef and bean I think.

Give them another go on the lamb. I preferred the beef and bean at Mad Mex too. They use a different bean at Zambrero (pinto).

Zambrero is shit
The review seems a bit sarcastic, but doesn't quite get blunt enough. This place is ridiculously crappy.

I'd be surprised if it's in business in a few months. Let's hope they go down soon so we can get a decent eatery.
